, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, that sort of thing. the fair labor standards act also requires that it be posted the minimum wage is $7.50 an hour, most people are aware of the laws. if i ask the average person, including students that come to my class, what are your rights under the national labor act, they don't have a clue. most don't know what a union is. workers have no idea what their rights are. one of the most controversial things the labor board has done finally they proposed a new rule that would require employers to post a notice, a large, one-page notice, that would define your basic rights thunder enational labor relations act just as we have for civil rights laws and the wage and hour laws. that's being challenge the one issue -- host: who is -- guest: employers are challenging that. the biggest publicity that's been generated didn't involve a board decision. they was boeing case, boeing decided to open a new manufacturing plant in south carolina. most of their work has historically been done in the seattle, washington, area and they've had a lot of work

the relationship between reason and faith and the place of religion in a secular world. i think the truth, judy, is all of of those things have validity. all of them add up to the full picture of a pope who had his strengths and his weaknesses. i think will undoubtedly be remembered for both. >> woodruff: monsignor hilgartner all of that plays into the question of what role will he play in the selection of his successor? he won't have a vote but he selected more than half of the cardinals who will be doing the picking. >> he has selected more than half. there was a question as to whether or not he would participate. and the holy sea clarified this morning in the middle of all the other news that he would not participate. but his influence is clear. i think even his statement this morning about recognizing that there are major things that the church needs to address and do that he doesn't feel that he has the stamina to be able to accomplish really sets the stage for the cardinals when they gather to begin to look at and discuss and reflect on what those issues are. as they then move into the co
then that they get bitter king to guns or religion or antipathy towards people who aren't like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment or antitrade center. as with a toy to explain their frustrations. >> the comments became a big part of the discussion on the left-right culture war. republicans were happy to publicize his comments, but these days they're terrified they might be losing the culture wars on some front, and they may well will. let's look at the grounds on gay marriage. once unthinkable, nine states and the district of columbia have legalized same-sex marriage either by court degree, legislative action or actual popular vote. and now illinois, delaware, and hawaii are also considering legalizing gay marriage, same-sex marriage. and the rights retreat on cultural issues extends to other areas as well. i'm joined by lauren ashburn, found over the daily download and a contributor to the daily beast. oftenly confused with hillary rodham clinton. but not politically. let me talk about this, because you're on the front all the time fighting for same-sex rights and gay rights generally. isn't
. >> it's not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment >> same-sex marriage, either by court decree, legislative action or actual popular vote. now, illinois, delaware and hawaii are also considering legalizing gay marriage, same-sex marriage. and the right's retreat extends to other areas, as well. i'm joined by laura ashburn and a contributor to the daily beast, the human rights campaign. often confused with hillary rodham clinton. >>> let me talk about this, you're on the front all of the time fighting for same-sex rights and gay rights generally. isn't it odd that in a country where we've begun to shift dramatically in that direction -- more than acceptance. it's much more positive. it's just, okay, we'll go along with that. at the same time we have a country that still affects gun rights in so many communities. are they different communities? >> i think so. and there's a whole range of issues, you know, that we could talk about from reproductive rights to clim
. they were released several hours later. i don't care much for people who use religion as a cloak to justify hatred, injustice and fear and i can't imagine god, should he or she or it exist, does either. i am so proud of my sister and niece for nighting for what they believe in, by having nerve to pray at a wall of prayer while being female. sara sidner is joining us in jerusalem. plain to us the significance of this, being at the wailing wall and what women are wearing and where they are praying. why does that matter? >> reporter: look, it's the most holy jewish site for prayer and basically what these women want is equal access to all of the nominations and those who want to practice their religion at the wall. basically they have been doing this for the past two decades. this is not a new act by these women. they call themselves women of the wall. they go down, wear the shawls, pray at the wall and they say they should be allowed to do that. the high court has put out a ruling basically saying they can go down to the property but the government has made a separate area that is not at the
out of office. i think they are going to have to form some kind of religion and go to church every sunday and worship him. it is all ridiculous. all the political -- it is just a game. nobody even wants to go or listen to the sides even more. the want to be right. host: what keeps you from being that way? caller: i watch politics continuously, every day, i listened to all sides. i believe in listening to the facts. i do not care if you are republican or democrat. i am a patriotic person. i care about this nation. sake, we are $16 trillion in debt. if we go bankrupt -- host: respect to the topic about hegel nomination. -- bring us back to the topic about the hagel nomination. caller: there is some reason why the bottom. host: this on twitter -- here is another tweet -- in clinton, maryland, a democrat. caller: this is politics as usual. i will cannibalize -- they are eating their own. here is a guy who has been in a warrant -- a war. he has endorsements from other secretaries of defense. you have a leon panetta who wants to get on with his life. politicians in washington are playing
is an islamic convert with decades old connections to the most anti american vair currents of the religion. >> right. >> i will tell you i don't know if this is true or not. i will tell that you there is so much in john brennan's background that should be questioned that this is plausible. >> sharia law. >> if somebody makes a charge like that, shouldn't we explore it before putting him as the chief of all intelligence. >> maybe explore it before mouthing off about it. stephanie: go on the water slide in that crazy town you're building make sure it's operating correctly. >> he doesn't care, there are no rules in there no regulations come on. >> i have the softest apples in town. stephanie: 17 minutes after the hour. that concludes another rye outous right wing world. >> she puts the broad back in broadcasting. it's the "stephanie miller show." i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. ♪ >> announ
fellow religion, i want our people out of there. that is not right. i come over to our country and try to kill us. we need to stay over there and fight for our freedom. host: you bring up interesting points. basic idea we have in this country is that we get into wars, but we very rapidly lose the ability to support those wars, political perspective. we saw what happened in vietnam. if desert storm last longer, we would have seen the same thing there. we know what happened with iraqi freedom. you're looking at a nation that can go in, with a superb military capability, which her daughter is a part of, and it can make a lot of differences, but the problem you have is that you have a political situation where we cannot sustain a long- term deployment, 12-13 years in afghanistan over the long term. it has become america's longest war. economically, you look at how that works. the big problem that i have with the drawdown is perhaps related to what your saying -- you have to be very careful about what to tell the enemy. you have to have a negotiating position that gets you from the strength
on friendship between people and human values. there is no discrimination based on religion. we have been very pleased to see that your government is defending marriage for all. change is afoot in france. we need to continue in order to create a social year. your role is crucial. do not give in to the vision of a single market. that is not our vision of europe. quite the contrary. this helps you to achieve our vision of europe. he said he would retrieve the french division when you were elected. now you can help breathe life back into the europeans. thank you. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. let me say again, let me congratulate the liberal in you. and do not want to treat problems with your socialist friends. your struggle in favor of marriage for all is a step forward to new freedom and is at the heart of the battle that we're trying to fight in our group. thank you very much. sixty years ago, monet said we are bringing together men, we are not bringing together states. and in fact that is still true. our union only has a meaning if it is a federation of people and neighbors -- and for
people. there is no formal discrimination there based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or age. the only thing someone might be able to claim is there are more college graduates who are nonminority than minority and you might be able to argue there's discrimination. that's the type of thing i think a court would find perfectly appropriate. it goes on all the time. so often if i have a job that i'm really skilled in that job but i don't have the background to move to the higher position, they bring in someone i have to train to be able to do my level of work and then they get a higher salary, they get bumped up to the higher positions and i stay where i am. that's very common. unfortunately it's not illegal. the first question you ask is about state people doing federal work. so many of the federal statutes give money to the states, different welfare provisions, different unemployment compensations under the unemployment tax, which is a federal tax, but the states run those services subject to certain minimum requirements. where you work for the state formall
